    whats the “one and only” gondola at big sky???


    • Montana Powder Skier August 3, 2022 / 11:23 pm

      I didn’t know there was a such thing as a d-line 8 person gondola. Glad to see that Big Sky is getting the first one😊.

      BS or its capital partner is planning a hotel of some sort over by Moonlight called the “One and Only”. This gondola is probably an access lift. So I don’t think it will supplement the meager lift system at Moonlight or alleviate the 100% dependence on the Six Shooter lift at that resort.


      • Bob February 25, 2023 / 3:34 pm

        Seems kinda confusing to call it the “one and only gondola” when they are installing two other gondolas that year. It seems like they could have come up with a better name that would be less confusing.


        • ShangRei Garrett February 25, 2023 / 3:45 pm

          One&Only is a luxury resort brand that is building the development that will have a gondola connecting it to Moonlight Basin


      • ShangRei Garrett February 25, 2023 / 3:48 pm

        It’s not intended to supplement Six Shooter; in fact, I’m not sure if it’s being funded by Big Sky/Boyne at all, or if One&Only, the resort company, is paying for it itself, but it definitely is only an access lift


        • Bob February 25, 2023 / 5:46 pm

          I don’t think BS is paying for it, as there’s nothing about it on its website (unlike its other lift projects).

      What quad?


        • Peter Landsman July 22, 2022 / 12:50 pm

          Heard there is a third project in play replacing Lift 4 with a high speed quad. Nothing official in the Forest Service system yet though.

        Last I heard it is Telluride’s old chair 9. I think Purgatory has a few more hoops to jump through but it should be happening in the next couple of years.


        • ShangRei Garrett January 6, 2023 / 10:06 pm

          I assume you mean they’re using the old 9 for Ice Creek, right? I can’t imagine they would replace twilight with a used fixed-grip, and Gelande is probably going to be the last of the three projects


        • pbropetech January 7, 2023 / 6:03 pm

          Yes, I wasn’t clear. I was responding to Chairlift Mania’s comment.

    Hows the sun peaks west bowl quad doing?


  4. 9412vcummins August 14, 2022 / 1:56 pm

    Where did you hear about this “ridgeline” chairlift at snowbasin? Littlecat is being replaced by a combination chairlift?


  5. Andy January 6, 2023 / 8:16 pm

    Currently being sourced and priced from the two major Lift Manufacturers: A replacement for Arrowhead: a 1988 Dopplemayr Quad chairlift, length 2440 feet, vertical 530 feet at the Alpine Ski Club in Collingwood Ontario. (data from Skilifts.org. Replacement timeframe from Alpine’s 2022 member yearend magazine.


    • reaperskier January 7, 2023 / 5:57 am

      Guessing Alpine Ski Club wants to replace Arrowhead with a modern fixed grip quad from Dopp or LPA, with Skytrac as a wildcard option. I doubt it will be a high speed quad with a mid-unload station.


      • Andy January 7, 2023 / 6:56 pm

        Correct Arrowhead won’t be a high speed quad , but they do want to move the mid unload station higher up the hill and also raise (fill in a dip in the ground) and move the bottom station uphill level with the bottom terminal of 2002 Dopplemayr CTEC Six Pack not too far away.

        The next high speed quad at the Alpine Ski Club in Collingwood will be in the 2028 range to replace the Millenium Quad in the North section of the Club.


        • reaperskier January 7, 2023 / 8:26 pm

          Is there the possibility for a loading conveyor on the replacement Arrowhead lift? Also, why is the club planning on relocating the midstation?


        • Andy January 10, 2023 / 7:59 pm

          Management at the Alpine Ski Club has not released any amount of detail on location on 2024 Arrowhead Quad midstation location, but typically the reason why ski resorts move terminal locations when rebuilding is to get better or different use out of the ski acreage available.


  6. Joey January 8, 2023 / 9:37 am

    In 2024, a new high speed quad, (Shadow Mountain) should be built to replace the SLI-RIBLET Shadow Mountain Double at Aspen Mountain, CO. No info on who’s going to manufacture it.

    Which resort in Austria is the Eaglecrest gondola coming from?


  8. skitheeast January 27, 2023 / 12:24 am

    Brian Head announced in the Salt Lake Tribune that the first lift(s) for Aspen Meadows will be installed in 2024. Logically speaking, it will likely be Stage 1 (and maybe Stage 2) of the gondola.

    Sunshine Village has now officially re-branded as Banff Sunshine Village.


  10. The Skier March 3, 2023 / 4:51 pm

    Will the One & Only Gondola at Big Sky have the boxy R2 style glass enclosures like the Explorer Gondola?

    It would be cool to have both gondola terminals match and then have all the bubble lifts use the standard D-Line terminal with the screen on the end


  11. SKIID March 13, 2023 / 12:55 pm

    Nothing has been said locally about Mt Spokane replacing Vista Cruiser. Since it’s in a State Park, it’s usually big news.


    • Chase March 13, 2023 / 1:16 pm

      It’s not confirmed. Some of the funds come from state parks funding, which was recently cut from the budget.


  12. skitheeast March 28, 2023 / 11:38 am

    Gore’s Hudson Express got moved to 2024? Hasn’t that project been ordered and confirmed for almost a year? Supply chain issues in 2022 was why the project got pushed to 2023 initially…


    • Peter Landsman March 28, 2023 / 11:42 am

      It has been postponed. I believe from the ORDA side, not anything on the Leitner-Poma end. Bear Cub at Gore and Legacy at Whiteface are still on for this year per the most recent ORDA board meeting.


  13. The Skier April 12, 2023 / 11:43 pm

    The Explorer gondola at Big Sky is planned to open fall 2025, not 2024


  14. hahahcat April 27, 2023 / 2:50 pm

    Will construction of International at Snoqualmie begin May 2023?


    • The Skier April 27, 2023 / 9:10 pm

      Yes, but it is a two year project which is why it’s listed as a 2024 lift


  15. Myles May 1, 2023 / 9:53 am

    Why is REX getting replaced with a 4 person and not a six person? If it is going to have the same capacity at 2800, why not go with a six pack? The chair spacing is longer to prevent misloads and it could operate in slightly higher wind speeds.


    • pbropetech May 1, 2023 / 1:51 pm

      My guess is the capacity of the hill and not the lift. With the gondola unloading up there now (and plans for upgrading its capacity at some point) there isn’t a ton of room up there. Could be wrong.


  16. Max V. May 1, 2023 / 1:06 pm

    Are there any recent updates on Revy’s South Bowl chair and terrain expansion? I was there this season and I’m surprised that it’s happening so soon.


  17. skitheeast May 4, 2023 / 11:09 am

    Sounds like Lumberjack and/or Timberline replacements at Copper will occur in 2024 or 2025.


    • pbropetech May 4, 2023 / 12:43 pm

      So I hear. I’ll believe it when they tell me to start taking chairs off. We were told we were replacing old H-lift starting in 2002, and Woodward wasn’t built until 2011. I’m not trying to be a pessimist about it but I’ve heard this song and seen this dance before. We shall see.


  18. skitheeast May 13, 2023 / 9:23 pm

    Laurel at Wolf Ridge is being replaced in 2024 according to the new owners via the Storm Ski Journal.


    • Peter Landsman May 14, 2023 / 6:59 am

      I read that post but it didn’t sound certain. The clock is ticking for anyone who wants a lift in 2024 to place a firm order.


  19. AO May 19, 2023 / 9:26 pm

    At Snowmass, Coney Glade is to be replaced with a LPA HSQ. Bottom terminal across from the mall where Burlingame was. Bottom half of liftline will follow the Burlingame alignment, there will be a turn station (likely detach) between Picnic Palace and Lynn Britt, then continue to existing Coney Glade top terminal location.

    Cirque will be replaced with a T-bar, manufacturer TBD. Same top terminal location, but realigned to eliminate the turn. Bottom terminal will be closer to Sheer Bliss lift.

    These are pending Forest Service project approval, though both were part of the recently approved updated master plan. Coney will also require approval from Town of Snowmass Village.
